Macau, when we take the name Macau the picture which comes in front of our eyes is Casinos, shopping center, big buildings, lavish lifestyle and for sure that’s true.Today I am going to share my experiences in Macau.See the world of Macau from my eyes.Here you go 🙂
Transport- Each casino is accessible by limousine bus, which is free from major public center like airport , border gate and ferry terminal. All big casinos buses have good frequencies 2~3 buses / 30 minutes.
Points to remember- Minimum age to enter in casino area is 18, so if your appearance does not looks like an adult then better to keep passport with you all time to prove your age to security guard around entrance of casino area.
What to expect- Like other casinos in the world, Macao also have all kind of games including private bidding space too. Minimum bit is decided on each table. If you are afraid of gambling, then go inside the casino area stroll with multiple tables and just see the people or play safe with a roulette.
Facilities- You can have limousine bus from casino to almost any part of Macao.If you are coming for a day trip and you are loaded with bags then you can keep your bags in luggage center with small amount money for a day or hours.
Nearby attraction- You can visit Taipa village, Rua Do Kunha cookie street if you are in Taipa part. If you are in Macao center then Stroll along the street of Portuguese architecture Macao can be a good choice.
Vagabond recommendation- If you do not have enough time then you can choose particular number casinos to explore for a day.We personally feel all casinos are almost same without any big difference. We visited Galaxy Macau, The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao.
Galaxy Macau- Biggest casino in the Taipa area, you will find golden color buses of this casino. Galaxy Macau provide exotic holiday experience with some cultural night.Entrance of this casino is always based on festival season, If you love private casino this is the place for you.
The Venetian Macao- People who are fan of Venice then this is the place of you, as the name suggests its Venice of Macau. You can experience small Venice inside the mall. There is a canal inside the mall where you can take gondola drive for couple of minutes with some packages like singing dining etc on gondola.For vegetarian people like cookie, you have many choices around food court. Best thing you may like in this casino is interior architecture and ambience, roof above gondola drive place is sky type wallpaper which is hard to check whether original or just wallpaper with balance light. Its the shoppers paradise.
The Parisian Macao- The Parisian Macao recreates the magic of Paris in Macau. Easy to mark this casino as it’s having Eiffel tower outside the building. For the people who love french cuisine, they might like this place.Our recommendation is BRASSERIE with great atmosphere, where you can enjoy, classically French meal.
All the casinos can be covered within a day with shopping, dining and gambling experience.If you have more time then you can visit local Taipa village which I am going to post on my next article.For people visiting Macau more than 2-3 days they can divide itinerary based on heritage tour ( Churches and Portuguese architecture), casino tour and adventure tour(Bungee & Horse riding).
